Top 10 Tips for Auto Repair

By Tyger Lucas

Plenty of our customers have asked us what they can do to extend the life of their cars.

To help you keep your auto running at the pinnacle performance our mechanics have compiled a listing of the top ten repair and maintenance items which will lengthen the life of your vehicle.

Change the Oil

Changing your oil at the factory advocated interval keeps the engine freed from sludge and combustion elements that will harm your auto.

Perform Tire Maintenance Regular tire rotation and correct inflation will not just lengthen the life of the tires, but also increase fuel mileage.

Change the Air Filter for the Engine and the Cabin If your air purifier gets too filthy, your engine won't be well placed to pull enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (i.e. Too much gas and not enough air). When this happens gas mileage suffers.

Replace the Spark Plugs Replacing the spark plugs in your engine can stop misfires and inadequate performance as well as significantly decrease emissions and improve gas mileage.

Flush the Cooling System Flushing the cooling system lengthens the life of the radiator, engine and heater by washing away corrosive elements like mud and rust particles that will clog up the cooling system and cause Problems in winter and summer. This could be done each 2 years.

Maintain the Brakes If you neglect your brake pads and shoes, you may cause damage to other, dearer brake parts such as rotors, drums and calipers.

Perform a Fuel Injection Service Performing a fuel injection service not only lengthens the life expectancy of the injectors, but can increase fuel mileage with benefits that completely outweigh the cost of the service.

Change the Transmission Fluid Changing your transmission liquid at regular intervals can extend the life of the transmission by 50%. If you perform this service on a constant basis likelihood is that you may never experience a major transmission failure.

Replace the Timing Belt Replacing the timing belt, before it breaks can help to save you masses of greenbacks. Most manufacturers advocate replacement between 60,000 and 105,000 miles dependent on brand and model. If the belt fails, the engine will immediately shut down leaving you marooned.

Perform a Seasonal Complete Vehicle Inspection Having your automobile inspected seasonally can lengthen the life of many major components of your automobile by diagnosing repair issues before they become major issues, and don't presume that getting your oil replaced at a "quick lube" comes with a intensive inspection. Have a qualfied shop perform the inspection to insure that nothing is missed.
